Animal Crossing New Horizons Update 2.0
Animal Crossing New Horizons update is a free update offered with a paid DLC. You can still enjoy the new features and mechanics introduced to the game with your existing Animal Crossing version.

Below, you can find some of the new features you can enjoy after installing the Animal Crossing New Horizons update!
From now on, you and your villagers can exercise together! Your villagers are stretching in from the resident services building and you can join them whenever you want. You can consider this new exercise as a mini-game offered in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
Redeeming Nook Miles
Players can redeem nook miles with the new update. All you need to do is visit the Resident Services building and run the Nook Stop terminal. Here, you can redeem your nook miles and spend them on amazing stuff such as DIY recipes.
Speak to Blathers for Quest
Blathers will be waiting for you in the museum, and he has some good news for you. He is going to give you a quest where you need to take a boat to explore a new island. Unfortunately, you cannot visit the new island without taking this quest. So, do not forget to pay a visit to beloved Blathers!
Visit Islands with Kapp’n
Kapp’n is back in this update, and he is ready to take you on a private island tour. This tour works similarly to the ones you take at the airport. However, this time, you have to pay 1,000 miles in advance. You can explore amazing islands and can collect amazing items to use in your recipes.
Grow Your Gyroid
In the Animal Crossing New Horizons update, you can grow the gyroid that Brewstar gave you. All you need to do is visit your island and bury it. Later on, you need to water it so that a small puff can appear. Make sure that you do not dig it by confusing it with a fossil.
Visit Harv’s Island for News
Harv is in a rush to speak with you so it may be a good idea to visit him on his Island. As you know, Harv is one of the oldest NPCs in the game and runs a business where you can customize your look. He is going to talk about a new collective, which you may be interested in.
Fund Harv’s Co-Op
Just like the previous co-ops such as Sahara’s wallpaper and rugs, you can fun Harv’s co-op too. You need to spend 700,000 Bells to benefit from all the opportunities he offers for you. Fortunately, you don’t have to pay all these bells at once. You can save money and pay him from time to time.
Customize Your Home
Animal Crossing New Horizons update also allows you to customize your home! You can visit the resident services building to speak to Tom Nook. Here, you can find all the newly introduced designs. The costs for switching the designs have decreased significantly too. It is worth noting that you can also find plenty of exterior changes with the new update.
